I think Tilden was a brilliant player and unfortunately very forgotten today. Strange because he was easily considered the GOAT as late as the late 1960's over Laver, Gonzalez, Rosewall, Budge, Kramer, Cochet etc.
I think Tilden's serve, forehand and movement would be great in any era. His backhand, however, would be vulnerable today. He'd have to improve it to be competitive, IMO.
